Help to Form Clubs Among the
Younger Farmers to In
PLAN IS GROWING FAST
Since hogs ' afford the quickest
means of increasing our meat sup
ply, continued and extended efforts
of public-spirited bankers in further

advancing to club members the
money needed for the purchase of
pure-bred sow pigs is doubly desir
able at this time, according to the
United States Department of Agri-
Pig clubs have Increased very rap
idly during the last seven years, the
mM-ialisti noint out In 1910 there
were fifty-nine members in the United
btates; today tne numDer exceeds
30,000, found principally in Arkansas,
Alabama, California, North Carolina,
Louisiana, Georgia, Texas, Oregon,
Oklahoma, Nebraska,- Kentucky, In
diana and Massachusetts. These
statei contained 21,673 members last
year, but pig clubs are heing formed
rapidly in other states. The demand
for gilts and bred gilts by club mem
bers is unprecedented, even at the
high prices at which they are held.
Financial assistance to the pig; club
members hat been the means of intro
ducing pure-bred hogs in places
where otherwise this might have been
impossible, and hat helped to build
up the agriculture of the committee
which the banks serve. These clubs
atand not alone for greater pork pro
duction. By increasing the amount
of Jive stock they encourage the pro
duction of much of the feed on the
farm, and a their activities are co
incident with or follow club work in
the growing of corn and forage crops,
they are part of a system that favors
a sound diversity in agriculture and
-a rotation of crops that will maintain
the fertility of the soil.
Two plans have been followed by
'bankers in providing the tow pigs
.' necessary to enable the boys and girls
? to engage in pig club work. One
' method ia the so-called promissory
note plan. The, banker makes indi
vidual contract with the pig club
members. In each case he agreea to
' lend them a certain sum of money .at
i 6 per cent interest for one year or
' longer .if - -necessary. .The .member
- agrees witeep up a membership in
, a pig dub,- to invest the loan under
the directiori'of the county agent or
v county club representatives and to re
pay it at maturity out of the proceeds
of the sale of the original stock or the
' increase. As security for the loan the
banker takes the member's promis-
aory note. The member's parent con
' tents 10 the contract in writing and
, agrees not to claim any right in the
5 pig purchased or their proceed.
;, Endless Chain.
' The other method Is called the
endless chain" plan. This also in
' volves individual - contracts. The
. banker agrees to furnish a registered
. sow pig.- The boy or girl agrees to
join a local pig club, obey its rules,
care for the sow according to instruc
tions, breed her at not less than eight
months of age to a registered boar of
l. the same breed, raise the litter accord-
ing to the rules of the club and de-
. liver to the banker two choice gilts
' (not less than eight weeks old) from
the first litter.
When the banker receives the two
; sow pigs -from the member and putt
- them out with other boya or girlt un-
der the tame agreement -the endless
, chain feature of the activities it set
' in motion. This plan may be varied
in details to suit conditions. For
instance, the banker may require the
' return of only one tow pig and atipu-
lata that the boy or girl must join
; corn or peanut club, raise at least
:-; half an acre of green feed and ex
' bibit the sow and her offspring at
' the county fair or live stock show.
Under similar arrangements boys
have received calves to raise and both
- boya and girls have received eggs of

Are Yon One of Them?
There are a great many people who
t would be very much benefited by tak
ing Chamberlain's Tablets for a weak
or disordered stomach. ' Are you one
of them? Mrs. M. R. Searl, Baldwins-
ville, N. Y, relates her experience in
I the use of these tablets:' "I had a bad
pell with my stomach about six
. months ago and was troubled for two
. or three weeks with gas and severe
, pains in the pit of my stomach. Our
druggist advised me to take Chamber

til I was cured. These tablets do not
relieve pain, but -after the '''pain has

Sure Way to Get . ' .
Rid of Dandruff
There is one sure way that never
- fails to remove dandruff completely
and that is to dissolve it. This de
. a troys it entirely.) To do this, .just
get about four ounces of plain, ordi
' """T .!'! ti; apply It at night
whan retiring; use enough to moisten
. the scalp and rub It in gently with the
finger tips.'' -
" By morning most, if not all, of
your dandruff will be gone, and three
or fouWmore applications will- eom
t pletely dissolve and entirely destroy
every single sign and trace of it, no
, matter how much dandruff you may
' have. -
Yon will find, too, that all itching
and digging of the scalp will stop in
, stantly, and your hair will be fluffy,
lustrous, glossy, silky and soft,- and
look and feel a hundred times better.
You can get liquid arvon at any
drug store. It is inexpensive, and
' four ounces is all you will need. This
simple remedy has never been known
to fail. Advertisement.

You might look at a carload of wheat
and think it ia clean; But it it not.
It has bits of ttraw and chaff and
